As a follow-up to operations already carried out, boosting security measures and sending reinforcements to the region, we are going to see a fast rise in PKK casualties, limiting their logistical abilities and gradually their structures in the cities. After a while they are going to lose their capacity to take the initiative in action.

Looking at today's leadership appointments, it is clear that The Supreme Military Council has acted in keeping with the law.

If the army accepts this then it will certainly aid the democratic process in Turkey and improve the military's image amongst Turks. People will start trusting the army a lot more.
